Happy New Year!
Heavy snow meant that we were low in numbers today but high in enthusiasm. Those who did venture out really did deserve to be whisked up immediately come the Rapture. Head of the queue, I’d think. Fortunately we did have two teenagers, one of whom had to light the Advent wreath. (Oh for a 4 year old with wonder in their eyes!) I had to move the Advent Wreath as there was a severe risk of me becoming a living Advent Candle myself. Well you don’t want all that hairspray too close to a naked flame. Not unless it is the Feast of a Martyr.
And now the Glorias are silent. I get to wear purple for the next 4 weeks (yes, I’m afraid there don’t appear to be any rose vestments here either). Morning Prayer begins tomorrow in church every day at 9am. You can join us if you like, or take a book and do it at home in communion with us.
(Here is how it looked after the first snow fall. Twice as bad now.)
